I have a new machine with Windows 7 Ultimate, 64bit. I set up the XP Virtual machine, downloaded and/or installed all my applications and everything was working perfectly including Internet Explorer, McAfee, etc. Internet connection is strong, can see ip address.

The virtual internet related packages quit getting the connection. I have an internet connection (virtual) when I open the Local Area Connection Status window; but virtual IE nor McAfee will open. The strange thing is when I switch back to the Windows 7 side, IE opens just fine. Any ideas on how to get it back working on the virtual side? Spent all day trying to fix. :confused:

I use VMware and when this problem happens, rebooting everything (host and VM) often fixes it.
